A man and a woman may engage in a friendship that involves a growing emotional intimacy but without the requisite deepening commitment, which results in warped relational patterns, disappointment, and pain. The other extreme is to plunge into a romantic, physically involved relationship that commonly leads to frustration and disappointment, and often results in profound emotional pain.
When a girl tells you she just wants to be friends, there's some fatal relationship/attraction landmine you stepped on and she wants no part of you but wants an emergency exit established.
When someone is "just looking for friends" they're establishing right off the bat 'whatever happens happens but I have the right to go 'hehe you're a mistake."Agree/disagree?
